This framework from the Systems Change Lab identifies indicators across key sectors that must transform to address the climate crisis and assesses how current trends will impact how much work remains to be done by 2030 and 2050 to deliver a zero-carbon world in time. This report translates needed transitions in power generation, buildings, industry, transport, land use, coastal zone management, and agriculture, as well as carbon removal technology and climate finance into 40 measurable targets for 2030 and 2050.
